A couple of months back, I discovered the existence of Bradford Literature Festival. I also found out that an old friend was participating in the brand-new (and therefore apparently completely unadvertised) Comic Con attached to the festival, so of course I went along. It's not far from my own Yorkshire home.
I've written up the first part of my trip on my non-Cthulhu blog. May be of interest to some, and it includes an interview with my friend, a professional comic artist. When I get time I'll check and post up the recordings of two talks I went to about the Thousand and One Arabian Nights, which did touch on Lovecraft at one point, and hopefully will be of interest to some Yoggies.
